The Happy Warrior by Donald C MacDonald
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Originally published in 1988, this revised and expanded edition of Donald C MacDonald's acclaimed memoirs provides an inside look at provincial politics in Ontario through the eyes of a party leader. Dubbed 'the Happy Warrior' by Tommy Douglas, MacDonald led the Ontario CCF/NDP for seventeen years, and continued to sit in the Legislature for twelve years after stepping down as party leader. During his political career, MacDonald played a significant role in the rise of the CCF/NDP, and provided a strong voice for the left wing in the Legislature. He also witnessed and criticised various scandals that plagued ruling parties.
